Any ideas on the best 754 mobo for AMD 64 CPU?

  Logov 20:34 16 Jul 2004

I've heard good things about these AMD 64 CPU's and would like any advice on what others consider the best mobo to house them. Also, I've heard that there can be problems with certain types of memory, in that some cause bottlenecks and some mobo's can be very picky about which they work well with.

I'm looking for both LAN and 5.1 sound integrated.

Any help much appreciated.

The Asus K8V deluxe has so many features for a good price it is unreal.

The new Athlons are now out with 939 pins. The last 754 is the 64-3700

Asus K8V Deluxe or K8V Wireless Deluxe if you need/want wifi built in.

Maybe you should go socket 939?

Thanks for the input guys I've pretty much decided on the ASUS K8V it was either that or the MSI-NEO-FIS2R.

What would be the best branded memory to use with this board? Corsair??

There is now the K8N=E deluxe which is supposed to be better.

I'd go along with Spook Tooth and go for the 939 pin.....otherwise in a year or so if you want to upgrade the chip you'll have to change the m/board as well
